As COVID-19 numbers continue to rise across the Commonwealth and country, the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau is encouraging more businesses to sign and adopt the Pocono Promise. Launched in May 2020, the initiative aims to protect residents, employees and guests across our four-county region. Read the document here.

The Pocono Promise was designed not just for the hospitality industry, but for the entire business community. In addition to our resorts, waterparks and restaurants, businesses such as auto shops, jewelry stores, real estate agencies, libraries, medical offices and construction companies have joined the Pocono Promise. Nearly 300 businesses of all shapes and sizes are committed so far.

“Yesterday, Gov. Tom Wolf and Dr. Rachel Levine announced an advisory urging Pennsylvanians to stay home. If you must go out, be assured businesses that signed the Pocono Promise have committed to following guidelines set forth by federal, state and local agencies,” said Chris Barrett, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau President/CEO. “It is important for businesses to not only sign the Pocono Promise, but to also live out its mission every day during these unprecedented times.”

Businesses can sign and adopt the Pocono Promise here then print this door sign and flyer for public display.
